The story behind the image
When on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, I recommend to visit Neist Point Lighthouse at the western tip of the island, at the end of B884. It was built in 1909 and it is a bit of a challenge to get there: two steep steps need to be conquered before you actually can enjoy this view. So please take your time (or be physically very fit) for this short hike. The views are definitely worth it. In the back of the photo you see the Outer Hebrides (South Uist).
I like this image because the pristine lighthouse sits within a sparse landscape at the very end of the known cultivated room. In a way, it’s a symbol for mankind trumping over nature.
